“As we practise social isolation and physical distancing, all our immediate plans on hold, including time-out for holidays and travel – now more than ever, I felt the need to provide a portal for transformation and healing through art. HOLIDAY DREAMING is not solely about escapism – it’s about awakening our collective imagination to envision the dawning of a better day.”
– Curator, Kitty Clark
HOLIDAY DREAMING is a collaborative exploration of the unique, individual and also universal experience and aesthetic of holidays. Whether it be holidaying at home in our own sanctuary, a salty coastal getaway on the Australian coast, a Mediterranean resort or immersing yourself in the culture of an exotic country – the menu for travel destinations has endless possibilities because of our insatiable appetite to get-away.
The works examine the wistful essence and idyllic nature of holidays as well as our explorations and treasures within these holiday experiences. Like postcards from the collective consciousness of dreamy, distant memories – distilled moments, the essence of a destination, the crisp recollections of beautiful places and welcoming people when we are away from our frazzled day-to-day, not distracted and fully present. Some of the works even examine the way we experience some moments of our day-to-day could be viewed as ‘pocket-holidays’ depending on perspective.
Drawing from our most treasured memories of family holidays from our childhood in particular, as well as more recent sojourns can continue to nourish us now. HOLIDAY DREAMING is the sharing of the essence of a collective of such memories for your sustenance at this time.
